Prologis, the global leader in logistics and industrial real estate, today marked the start of construction of a new 535,000 square foot industrial logistics building on Prologis RFI DIRFT (its flagship rail-served logistics park in Rugby) with a ground-breaking ceremony.
This latest building, which will be ready for occupation in October 2019, is being constructed by Volker Fitzpatrick, and will provide exceptional flexibility through its height, ability to be extended and intermodal connectivity, as Phil Oakley, Market Officer at Prologis UK, explains:
“We know that our customers take a long-term view when selecting something as important as a National Distribution Centre. For this reason, this building will have a clear internal height of 21m to maximise cubic capacity and enable ‘vertical expansion’, if required, during the lease term. Additionally, this facility is designed to be extended beyond 535,000 sq. ft should an occupier require a larger building.
